Project Gallery | Workshop Slides | Workshop Recording

Workshop description. This hour-long workshop focalizes the assignment guidelines for first-year writing and asks how our assignments engage with FYW ideas like the essential components and the habits of practice/writing moves. It seeks to present some of the theoretical foundations that scaffold assignments in first-year writing, while also giving a gallery of four different assignments for us to see how and why our fellow teachers are making certain decisions in their assignment creation.
